Alpine skiing in Norway

Go skiing in the same tracks as Olympic gold medallists Lasse Kjus and Alberto Tomba at Hafjell, or choose another recommended ski resort.

Located just north of Lillehammer, you find the ski resort of Hafjell. The resort was the site for the giant slalom and slalom events during the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics.

"High standard slopes"

Berend Blanket from the Netherlands is here with his wife and two children and another family of five. They have rented a cabin and are here to ski.

- The slopes are perfect for us. The children can ski the gentler slopes while we try the steeper more challenging ones and meet them at the bottom, says Berend.

The Blanket family has been coming to Hafjell several years in a row.

- We come here because of the excellent snow conditions and the high standard slopes. We like to book well in advance and know we can rely on the weather conditions, explains Berend.

Other resorts

In a country famous for its winter athletes, Hafjell is far from the only resort worth spending your holiday at. With more than 200 modern alpine ski resorts to choose from, you should be able to find one to suit your needs.

Andreas Rødven, general manager of the Norwegian Ski Resorts’ Association is sure that the Norwegian resorts offer value for money.

Quality checks

- Quality checks we have carried out during the last couple of years show that tourists visiting our ski resorts are very pleased. Their overall experiences compared with their expectations are extremely good, says Mr Rødven.

He explains that Norway has tip top resorts offering safe skiing for both new beginners and the advanced. In addition most resorts have high standard accommodation, restaurants, pubs, shops and lively after ski venues.
